A Leauki's Writings

Consider this: Hamas, not Israel, refuses to allow donated food and medicine in. If it’s “collective punishment” when Israel restricts certain items, what should we call it when Hamas refuses all of the items? Few seem to have given it any thought. So far I haven’t found a single person indignant about the Israeli blockade who has said or written a word about Hamas refusing to allow donated goods into the territory. Even those who actually donated and delivered the items are quiet about it.


And yet, for the most part, the only people who vigorously protest Hamas are Palestinians, Israelis, and Israel’s supporters in Western countries. Most “pro-Palestinian” activists in the Middle East and the West hardly say anything about the Taliban of the Eastern Mediterranean except when cheering them on at creepy rallies.

No one cares about the "People" of Gaza.  They are pawns in the battle to demean Israel.

The Palestinian president, not quite as interested in misinformation as the western media, tries to put things right:

‘We want blockade lifted, but Hamas must end Gaza coup.’

The Palestinian Authority is concerned about Turkey’s increased support for Hamas, a PA official in Ramallah said on Monday.

The official said that the PA leadership was “unhappy” with Turkey’s policy toward Hamas, especially with regard to pressure to lift the blockade on the Gaza Strip unconditionally.

“Turkey’s policy is emboldening Hamas and undermining the Palestinian Authority,” the official told The Jerusalem Post.


The PA is also concerned the reopening of the Rafah border crossing to Sinai would enable Hamas to tighten its grip on the Strip.

“We wish to remind the Turkish and Egyptian governments that the border crossing was controlled by the Palestinian Authority before Hamas launched its coup in 2007,” the official added. “If the Rafah border crossing is going to be reopened, that should be done in coordination with us and not with Hamas.”


And you know what?

He has a point.

Whether the world and the media like it or not, the Palestinian Authority is the recognised government of the Palestinian territories and border crossings to its territory should be controlled by it, regardless of my or anybody else's opinion of Abbas and the PLO.

If there were elections in Gaza today, Hamas would lose and the PLO would win. Hamas know this. And I am sure the "peace activists" do too.
